The Truth Behind Why The First Footprints On The Moon Don’t Match Neil Armstrong’s Boots
This Is The Only Photo Of Neil Armstrong On The Moon
Please refresh the page and retry. T he only clear picture showing the face of Neil Armstrong while walking on the Moon has been uncovered by an amateur photographer. T here are surprisingly few images of Armstrong on the lunar surface , because he himself took most of the photographs, and was only caught from behind in one shot by accident, when pilot Buzz Aldrin was recording a panorama. A film camera on the landing module did pick up footage of Armstrong, but his features cannot be seen because his visor was down or he had his back to the spacecraft. The new image of Armstrong was taken just minutes after he had stepped out of the landing module, before Aldrin had even walked on the surface. Nasa has asked the Apollo 11 commander to make a quick survey and collect a haul of Moon rocks as contingency samples in case something went wrong and the mission had to be swiftly aborted.
F ifty years ago this week, a former navy pilot created one of the most revolutionary artistic masterpieces of the 20th century, one we have yet to fully assimilate. His name was Neil Armstrong and his astonishing act of creativity is a photograph of his Apollo 11 crewmate Buzz Aldrin standing on the Sea of Tranquillity on the moon. His features and flesh are hidden inside a thickly padded white spacesuit, its visor reflecting the tiny figure of Armstrong himself, beside the gold-coloured legs of the lunar lander. This effacement of Aldrin came about because Apollo astronauts wore visors lined with gold to protect their eyes from sunlight. Yet these reflective qualities are part of what makes this such a powerful, complex image, one in which we can see two lunar horizons. Meanwhile, reflected and warped by the helmet, the other horizon stretches away behind Armstrong. The photographer has incorporated the making of the image into the image, to tell the story of something new in the universe: two human beings looking at each other across the dusty surface of an alien world.

Both astronauts had extensive photography training in preparation for the mission. Have you ever gone on an trip with friends, only to discover afterward that there's only one picture of you from the whole trip, and it includes your posterior rather than your face? Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong could probably relate to that. He's partially visible, or shows up as a reflection, in about four other photos. But this photo of him with his back to the camera, working on something attached to the outside of the lunar module, is the only full-body image of Armstrong on the surface of the Moon.
Few would deny that Neil Armstrong's shot of fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin is one of the most famous and compelling photos ever taken. What makes it so iconic? Of course, he had access to a place that only 11 other human beings have been, but there's more to it than that. The photo itself is well composed, full of incredible details and charged with the energy of the occasion. How Armstrong got it is a story of not just luck, but preparation and a great eye.
